I have a question to propose to all you fashionistas out there: are vintage reproductions of designer goods cool? I say yes because back in the 80’s no one made knock-offs better than China – Hong Kong specifically.
We all know that parts of Asia are notorious for the import of knock-offs. But these modern replicas are no where near as cool as their vintage counterparts. Don’t ask me why. The materials used on the old bags – as well as the new – are deplorable when you compare them to the real thing. Obviously everyone wants the real thing but when I find these bags in thrift stores – I pick them up – along with other vintage-fake designer goods. To me, old-school is always endearing – whether real or plastic.
What do you think?
